Go into the BIOS settings during initial power on boot up, often F10 or F2 are common. Check the date and time, if they are off, you should be able to temporarily boot by setting the date and time but you'll have to do it every time you boot. If the date and time is off, and you set the correct date and time and it still doesn't boot, you'll want to make sure it's booting to the correct drive.

When it doesn't boot, does it give you any error?

Hi ,,

did you tried the offline diagnostics tools (Array Diagnostic Tool) and check it .

This is because either the image on the hard drive is bad (corrupted, missing boot sector, etc) or because the hard drive itself has some issue like corruption etc.
If this is a mirrored raid array (two drive mirroring each other) I would try to remove one of the drives and boot again. If that does not work reinsert and remove the other drive and try to boot.

Use the HP Smartstart CD and configure the with array with 2 arrays and 2 logical drives. The first with OS array on RAID 1 (2 drives mirrored). The second array on RAID 5 (3 drives minimum).

Make sure to use Insight Manager for worry free monitoring.

I'd say the hard disk went bad. See if it'll boot from a live cd to copy your data off of the linux drive (if it's accessible at all).

The setup program does not recognise your storage controller.

HP and Dell usually supply a startup CD, that will help you configure RAID levels and partitions and start the Windows installation. If you have the supplied CD boot from it and it should work OK, if not you can download it here

Please let me know if it works, any issues send a reply :)

dear erwin,

as per your writing the server raid has broken .. its may be a problem with a hard disk , first you have to check the hard disk state . to do that you should enter into raid bios . don't try to something on that , just see the status of logical drive then which are the disks includes on that raid

in you post also it may give the details of failed disk ids

then you may have problem with your batt. unit , for that please do the above steps first then back with that...

The best way to connect is to use the Ethernet cable to connect each pc to each other or use a Ethernet hub to connect the two together.

Good Luck

Restart Computer and during the POST self test phase, press either F10, DEL, or sometimes F8. Press only one key per start. Usually one of the three will work.
